One glance over Nadja’s discography and it’s clear they mean serious business when it comes to releasing records; the husband and wife drone duo practically define ‘prolific’.
Ok, so not all of it reaches the goosebump-inducing heights of Touched or Corrasion but Aidan Baker is the kind of guy who will record something out of boredom, thinks it sounds all right and just put it out.
So it may be of comfort to you to know that Nadja is the latest band to join the ranks of Southern Records‘ Latitudes series, “a limited edition never-to-be-repeated series of session recordings capturing the transience and limitless expression of our modern world.”
Sky Burial features two tracks recorded live at Southern’s London studios, culminating in a 38 minute psychedelic tidal wave of sound that can only ever be Nadja. A limited number of these will be on blue vinyl so get on it Nadja fanboys.
Order yours from Broken Spine or Piccadilly Records.
ahhh Piccadilly Records. My own local record store, god bless you.
Ya know, I feel like every Nadja record captures the transience of our modern world, simply because they're generally all over the place. Part of why am I a confessed fanboy myself.
I love Nadja, but with the past two years worth of material it seems that they've really started to just about release anything. Like with the rest of the 2010 releases, i'll pass.
I'd say you're missing out, Flesh Monolith. If nothing else, the Ruins of Mourning 10" and Autopergamene are really, really good. But it's your choice, of course.
The point I'm trying to make is that it might be a more stand-out release seeing as it's a limited special blah blah blah edition. Your call! I ain't gonna buy it, I'll listen to Al's copy haha.
Hmm I guess I'll have to download it. So many misses have made me ignore this band. Bliss Torn From Emptiness is still one of my favorite albums.
